Kapaito scored two hat-tricks for the 'slum boys' last campaign that saw him finish the season with 16 goals

Kenyan Premier League top scorer, Erick Kapaito is targeting at least five hat tricks with Kariobangi Sharks next season.

Kapaito scored two hat-tricks last campaign that saw him finish the season with 16 goals, one above Gor Mahia forward Jacques Tuyisenge.

“I want to score more goals next season and if possible I want to score four or even five hat-tricks.”

But before the season kicks-off on December 8, Kapaito’s concern right now is to help Sharks book their maiden trip to the continental stage when they take on Sofapaka in the FKF Shield Cup final on October 20. “It will be a nice chance for us to go to the continental stage.

“I had thought about winning the top scorer's accolade when I joined Sharks and I’m happy about the achievement. I believe there are some areas I need to improve on but I still have that chance next season, even to increase my tally.”

Sharks, who were promoted to the top tier in 2017,  finished sixth on the log.
